First, describe how you installed it.

Red Hat 9.0 Package Management Tool

LNAG - How do I install a program I downloaded from the Internet?
Rute Guide's software explanation
You might want to check out CheckInstall to manage source code installations/uninstallation

Depends on how you installed it mate ...

if it was an rpm package, use rpm -e ...

if it was OO's binary installer, use it's
uninstall ...

...


Cheers,
Tink

The packages where installed when RH was installed originally.

I've tried uninstalling packages via the package manament, but i get errors!

eg when removing Gnome

Packages not found

kde = 3.1-5
fontconfig-devel
kdegraphics = 3.1-4
libmikmod.so.2

whats that all about!??
